Can I set a data transfer limit to prevent overages?

Linode Staff

Is there any way to set a limit in the Linode Manager to restrict the amount of data transferred from my Linodes? I'd like to prevent any unexpected overages.

There's no way to set a hard limit in the Linode Manager but you can set up automatic email alerts if you'd like. That way you'll be alerted if there's any unusual resource usage.

You could also set up a quota in iptables if you'd like, which is a special rule that stops matching after it reaches a set quota. We have a guide on using iptables in general here.
